Title: wiimote battery pack with on/off switch
Post by: bugmenot on October 31, 2010, 11:57:12 AM
I've noticed that the wiimote consume some battery power even when is off.
So i'm looking for a battery pack with a on/off switch or some trick to electrically disconnect the battery when the controller is not in use.

According to Nintendo the batteries should last up to 60 hours but I doubt that. I too have noticed some "drainage". And off/on switch would be a cool thing but if anything, why not just take the batteries out when not in use? Thats what I do.
